For 56 days, the consortium formed by Abengoa and Acciona has led the melting process of a total of 46,000 tons of salts from the Chilean Atacama Desert. Thanks to its thermal conservation capacity, the solar plant will be able to generate clean energy in a distpatchable way for 24 hours.
Cerro Dominador will be the first solar thermal plant in Latin America and will have a capacity of 110 MW and tower technology.
GO ECO GREEN21– The Cerro Dominador solar thermal plant, which is being built by a consortium formed by Abengoa and Acciona for its owner EIG Gobal Energy Partners, has successfully completed one of its main milestones in its execution: the fusion of more than 46,000 tons of salts from the Atacama Desert in Chile.
